PostSubject: Nebraska Agriculture center seeks to link crops and health   Sat Jul 15, 2017 3:40 am

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Jeff Raikes was unapologetic as he shot down pitch after pitch from University of Nebraska scientists aiming to connect research being done on microorganisms in the digestive tract to the broader world.
What the Ashland native and former Microsoft executive sought was an idea he calls “Agriculture 2.0,” connecting Nebraska’s largest economic engine with improving health outcomes in billions of people around the world.
It took time for some of NU’s best minds to catch up, said Robert Hutkins, a food science professor at UNL.
“When we’d come up with an idea we thought was big, Jeff would say to us: ‘Think bigger,’” he said.
The NU researchers eventually did, setting the stage for the Nebraska Food for Health Center. The center is a $40.3 million collaboration among researchers across NU, food and drug manufacturers and philanthropists interested in the intersection between agriculture and medicine.
